I Can Still See My Babies

I am so excited to have a brand new post over on one of my all time favorites…Scary Mommy! This one has never before been seen on our blog, so here is a little preview before you head over there to get the full experience.

I Can Still See My Babies

I sat in church watching the family in front of me, a mother, a father and their grown daughter. As I watched, the mother put her arm around her daughter and her woman-daughter put her head right on her mother’s shoulder. I looked down to my five-year-old resting his head in my lap. In that moment a truth hit me. Our grown people really will always be our babies because when we look through our parent eyes, we can still see the babies they once were.

    Perfect! As one of my babies is 10 hours into a car ride with her dad, visiting a college in the mountains, I am ready, she is ready for the next step. Yet two mornings this week she wrapped her arms around me as made sure she was waking up for school. Still my baby… As my son helped me mow the lawn, he climbed to the top of the street sign, just because he’s not quite a full man, yet so big and strong that he can help with the heavy lifting and yard work. Still my baby… Your words are words that I have been feeling this week as well. Thank you for putting them together so beautifully!

      Thank you so much Karrie! Oh yes, they are so still your babies and I love the story of each of your kids because it is just so them. Thank you for reading and for sharing!
